Du Bois Research Institute's Fellows Program at the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research, or through the Visiting Scholars and Fellows Program at the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (DRCLAS).

Applicants to the Visiting Scholars and Fellows Program at DRCLAS, focusing on questions related to Afro-Latin America, are eligible for additional resources from the Afro-Latin American Research Institute at the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research.  Proposals accepted for funding by DRCLAS will be sent to the ALAR Institute for assessment, and grantees will be notified through DRCLAS.
